67 editions published between 1954 and 2010 in French and Undetermined and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Lors de sa parution en 1954, ce livre fit l'effet d'une véritable bombe, tant en France qu'au Maroc qui luttait pour son indépendance. Avec une rare violence ; il projetait le roman maghrébin d'expression française vers des thèmes majeurs : poids de l'Islam, condition féminine dans la société arabe, identité culturelle, conflit des civilisations. Vilipendé au début, commenté par des générations de lecteurs, il est enseigné depuis quelques années dans les universités marocaines. Dix-huit thèses de doctorat lui ont été consacrées à ce jour." -- Book cover

La Mère du Printemps = L'Oum-er-Bia : roman by Driss Chraïbi ( Book )
23 editions published between 1982 and 2008 in French and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'essentiel de ce roman est constitué par la méditation d'un Berbère sur la façon dont sa tribu, au cours des âges, à subi les diverses invasions phénicienne, romaine, turque, portugaise, etc. L'accent est mis sur la conquête du Maghreb, faite au 7e siècle, au nom de l'Islam, par un général venu d'Egypte. L'auteur est un écrivain berbère du Maroc, installé en France. Il a dédié son oeuvre "à toutes les minorités"

Une enquête au pays : roman by Driss Chraïbi ( Book )
27 editions published between 1981 and 2006 in French and Russian and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dans un petit village oublié au coeur du Haut-Atlas marocain, deux policiers tentent de mener une enquête et se heurtent à la rudesse du paysage et du climat autant qu'à la simplicité frustre des habitants. A la fois hymne sensuel à la terre natale et vision du Maroc de l'après-décolonisation, Une enquête au pays mêle l'humour et la réflexion en confrontant deux sociétés et deux époques qui ont bien du mal à dialoguer entre elles. Et c est aussi, pour Driss Chraïbi, l'occasion de dénoncer, non sans ironie, la crétinisation par la chefferie et les dangers d'un progrès occidental importé qui a tendance à détruire les valeurs traditionnelles de la société arabo-berbère. -- Back cover

Muhammad : a novel by Driss Chraïbi ( Book )
3 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It is the 26th day of Ramadan in the year 610, and a handsome man named Muhammad is meditating in a cave on Mount Hira. Fear grips him as he tries to sort out the visions and voices washing over him; and terrified that he is possessed, he leaves the cave to return to Mecca. The day that will transform Muhammad's life - and change the world - has begun." "That day becomes a fluid intermingling of the ordinary and a dreamlike conviction that something indescribable is about to happen. Finally, his disquiet increasing, invading his sleep and forcing him to leave his wife's side, Muhammad returns to Mount Hira to give birth to the momentous revelations within him." "This finely crafted, poetic novel captures the mystery of religious revelation as it unfolds in all its intensity, providing a unique window on Islam's Prophet."--Jacket

L'inspecteur Ali : roman by Driss Chraïbi ( Book )
19 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in French and Undetermined and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Driss Chraïbi s'essaye à la littérature policière ... d'un genre tout à fait personnel. Ce livre entame un cycle consacré à l'inspecteur Ali, anti-héros par excellence, vulgaire et coureur. Il semble que l'auteur ait cette fois opté pour la légéreté et la dérision, mais pas par pure gratuité. N'est-ce pas la façon la plus subtile d'opérer une vive critique? Toujours est-il que Chraïbi inaugure un courant burlesque dans la littérature marocaine d'expression française
